In search of good fresh mango

Does anyone have a good place to get a box of fresh mangos? Preferably Kent or Ataulfo variety? I got a box of Ataulfo at 99 Ranch and they were ok at best. Not enough mango flavor for me. The other mangos at 99 Ranch looked like the Tommy Atkins brand and were either on the verge of rotting or were rock hard and not fragrant.

The Mexican lady who sells cut mango, jicama and cucumber at the La Jolla Farmer's Market had really, really flavorful mango and all she would tell me is that she got them "at a warehouse in Chula Vista." I came very close to offering to buy a box off her.
